    Everywhere I look the idea seems to be to use odin and get the appropriate firmware from SamMobile so I put in the details of the phone and downloaded this piece of firmware:
    G920FXXU2BOG8_G920FBTU2BOG9_BTU

    The phone is:
    - model G920F
    - a UK phone
    - bought sim free unlocked

    When attempting to flash the firmware onto the phone using odin it fails very early on. See the output in odin below:
    <OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
    <OSM> Binary Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    <OSM> Please wait..
    <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
    <OSM> Leave CS..
    <ID:0/005> Added!!
    <ID:0/005> Odin engine v(ID:3.1100)..
    <ID:0/005> File analysis..
    <ID:0/005> SetupConnection..
    <ID:0/005> Initialzation..
    <ID:0/005> Get PIT for mapping..
    <ID:0/005> Firmware update start..
    <ID:0/005> SingleDownload.
    <ID:0/005> sboot.bin
    <ID:0/005> NAND Write Start!!
    <ID:0/005> FAIL!
    <ID:0/005>
    <ID:0/005> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    And on the phone I get the following:
    SW REV. CHECK FAIL. BINARY: 3, DEVICE: 2

    The only suggestions I can find is that I am picking the wrong firmware, so I tried a couple others for the same model of phone but no luck.

    What should I try next?
